The Spring of Arda was a time period before the Awakening of the Children of Ilúvatar. Its name refers to the first flourish, brought by the Valar, of natural life on Arda.

HistoryEdit

In this period before the Elves appeared, the Valar had ordered the world as they wished and rested upon Almaren (their first kingdom), and Melkor lurked beyond the Walls of Night. During this time, the Vala Yavanna planted the seeds that she had long prepared, and the first plants and forests started to grow. Animals and other beasts now appeared and began to thrive over the Earth.

Entering a time of rest and leisure after their great labors, the Valar made a great feast and celebrated, and Tulkas married Nessa.

With Tulkas after this asleep, Melkor decided to return to Arda, and came and settled in the far north where the light of Illuin was dim. There he began delving the deeps of a great fortress, Utumno, and there made his plans to despoil the works of the Valar. He blighted and poisoned the earth causing living things to fall sick and rot. Knowing that it could only be the work of Melkor, they began to search for him but Melkor was already prepared and before they could find him, he struck destroying the two Lamps of the Valar.

The fall of the great pillars of the lamps threw the seas into chaos and set that center of the world ablaze, as great flames poured out from the lamps. In this catastrophe the Valar were too occupied in restraining the tumults of the world to seek out Melkor. The Spring of Arda ended, with Almaren was destroyed.

Shortly afterwards, the Valar removed to Aman far away, where they fenced themselves in and created the Two Trees of Valinor to light the world. This began a new era.[1]
